What AV equipment do you need?
If you’re someone planning a meeting, presentation, or conference for a company, you likely have your plate full. No matter what size the event is, whether it’s a small gathering in a conference room or a company presentation within a banquet room, there is a lot of planning, organizing, and strategizing that goes into the process. As a good rule of thumb, when a meeting has more than twelve attendees, it is essential to have the proper audio visual equipment available to ensure that your meeting, presentation, speeches, and panels are all audibly and visually appealing to them. To have a successful and worthwhile event, check out some essential audio visual equipment that you need for your next conference, presentation, or business meeting
1. Audio (Speakers)
Speakers play an important role in meetings, presentations, and other events. If your event has a lot of attendees, there is a good chance that hearing may be a concern. Having a few speakers or a strong speaker system can make all the difference. Having a quality speaker — or speaker system — incorporated into your meeting or conference will ensure that all the attendees can hear clearly.
2. Projector / Flat Screen / Video Wall
For events that will likely have many people watching the same thing simultaneously, a large presentation screen is a nice piece of video equipment to have. Projectors allow computer screens to be projected onto a large screen or flat surface with ease. Flat screens work well in high ambient lighting – typically used in smaller environments or when video distribution to multiple locations around the room or facility is required. Video Walls are also a great choice in high ambient lighting. Video Walls are for those presentations that really need to “pop” . Presentation screens enhance the material being presented and enable all to be able to see the selected information without any strain. Don’t risk any employees, clients, or guests missing critical information; include a presentation screen for your event or meeting.
If your event includes speeches or presentations, a microphone is an essential piece of audio equipment. There are many microphones available. Our knowledgeable staff will help you pick the microphone that is right for you. The mic you select should be able to withstand use throughout the duration of your event and easily connect to other pieces of audio equipment, like mixers and recording devices. If your meeting has multiple speakers, you may want to consider a wireless microphone so it can easily be transferred from speaker to speaker.
Lighting is a critical component to a successful event. Are you making a video recording ? Correct stage lighting is critical for video recordings void of shadows and flickers. Corporate Colors or Theme Colors? Wall wash lights can be spread around the room to increase the sense of connection and warmth. Do you have High Impact Moments in your presentation? Robotic lighting can create movement and flash – “Visual Exclamation points”.
More likely than not, the meeting will feature a presentation or other digital information and media. Having some type of computer, whether it be a desktop, laptop, or personal device, is necessary to any meeting that requires information that needs to be presented to an audience. Whether its a slideshow to highlight the quarterly profits or a video that recaps a large company event, you will need to have a computer that’s readily available to hold your files and material. If the location of your meeting is in-office, you may have a desktop available already. Laptops, on the other hand, are great for easy transportation and setup at other venues and locations outside of the office.
6. Stage / Risers / Truss
Large events and Trade Show Exhibits often require that presenters or presentation materials are elevated for easy viewing from varied vantage points. Riser sections can be assembled in very small to very large platforms to elevate presenters, discussion panels, entertainers, etc.. Truss systems are used to safely elevate heavy items for easy viewing. Truss systems also make great trade show booths for attaching lighting, marketing materials, and display panels.
Setting up your AV equipment
Now that you have a good understanding of what common audio visual equipment is needed for business meetings and presentations, the next step is to determine how to get the equipment, as well as how to set it up. Some people will purchase the equipment and try setting it up themselves. While this may be manageable for a small employee meeting, there is the risk of running into issues with connecting equipment and technology. The best approach, though, is most likely to rent audio visual equipment and have a professional set it up for you. This way, you can ensure that you have reliable and modern audio and video equipment and will not encounter any technical difficulties. When you need audio visual equipment rental for your next meeting, presentation, or business event, it may be best to consider a third party audio visual service, and there is no better A/V company than FHM Audio Visual, Inc.
Reasons To Consider FHM A/V For Your Next Meeting or Event
There is much more that goes into a business meeting that just the presented material. Pulling off an effective meeting and presentation includes a lot of hard and dedicated work. Not only do you need to have the proper material and information gathered, you also need the right audio visual equipment to present it. If your meeting is within your business, you’re stuck with finding the proper equipment and setting it up correctly. And, if the meeting or conference is outside of the office, you may be at risk of being stuck with low-quality audio visual equipment, and very high costs from in-house conference center A/V services.
By hiring FHM A/V, you can not only save on the hassle of having to set up and get the proper equipment, you also can save on costs and receive excellent service. Check out some reasons you should hire FHM A/V for your next meeting, conference or presentation in Houston and the surrounding areas.
